“a little religion and great art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Again I was just lucky to turn up at the right time. There was only me and a Bolivian couple that enjoyed this guided tour and lucky for me the Bolivian couple were able to translate into English. The cathedral is fantastic but even more fantastic is the array of art works throughout, including of course the bejewelled virgin. Some of the art work, as I noted through a lot of the churches, is in need of restoration but considering its age I'm not surprised

“Had the entire place to ourselves”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Worth making time in your schedule to see the inside of the cathedral and Virgin of Guadaloupe. Unbelievable amount of jewels inside this place.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011 via mobile

In my opinion, this has been the highlight of all the museums in Sucre. The cathedral is absolutely beautiful, the history excellent, artifacts and paintings very interesting and very unique.

“Upseted to have visitors”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

The lady was not happy when we arrived. After collected the money of the tickets she advise us it was forbidden to take photos.
She come along us and explain us general information in an automatic way... At least, in the end, she gave us the key of the WC.
